101 Year Old Michigan Gets A Surprise Birthday Party [Video]

Luthard Eid has seen a lot in his 101 years, but the Port Huron resident had never had a surprise birthday party. Until now.

At 101, Luthard Eid has celebrated many birthdays, but the one last week was made special by dozens of kids in his Port Huron, Michigan neighborhood coming to sing “Happy Birthday” with balloons and handmade cards. Eid came outside and listened to the little ones sing, rewarding them with candy and inviting them inside.

According to USA Today, the kids were treated to sights they’ve never seen before – like a typewriter – and stories of his life experiences, and Eid even played the harmonica for them. His advice to the youngsters? “Go to school and do the best you can,” he tells them. “Always do the right thing.”

Eid’s neighbor Mary Williams organized the celebration with the kids and says it was eye opening for them. “The knowledge he shared with those kids they won’t find in a book,” she explains. And Eid says he had a truly great time celebrating with his young neighbors. “I’ve never had such a wonderful birthday before,” he told the Port Huron Times Herald . “I’ll never forget it.”
